Dallas declares virus emergency | Virology and Bioinformatics from Virology.ca | Scoop.it
A state of emergency is declared in Dallas as the city seeks to contain the mosquito-borne West Nile virus, which has claimed 14 lives in Texas.

At least 14 people have died after contracting the virus in the state so far this year.

Almost 700 cases have been reported across the country - the highest number since 2004.

Texas residents have been urged to use insect repellent and avoid going out at dusk and dawn.
